Bioinspired Fibers Change Color when Stretched

Bioinspired Fibers Change Color when Stretched | SynBioFromLeukipposInstitute | Scoop.it
Socrates Logos's insight:

"Color-tunable photonic fibers mimic the fruit of the "bastard hogberry" plant

A team of materials scientists at Harvard University and the University of Exeter, UK, have invented a new fiber that changes color when stretched. Inspired by nature, the researchers identified and replicated the unique structural elements that create the bright iridescent blue color of a tropical plant's fruit. The multilayered fiber, described today in the journal Advanced Materials, could lend itself to the creation of smart fabrics that visibly react to heat or pressure. "Our new fiber is based on a structure we found in nature, and through clever engineering we've taken its capabilities a step further," says lead author Mathias Kolle, a postdoctoral fellow at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS). "The plant, of course, cannot change color. By combining its structure with an elastic material, however, we've created an artificial version that passes through a full rainbow of colors as it's stretched."...."

What are biological microprocessor applications? Part 1 - YouTube

Monitoring of biological systems by a biological microprocessor

Biological systems need to be monitored in respect to disease diagnostic, to drug screening, to understand experimental systems, and to observe the environment.

In line with this, a biocomputer has been utilized to detect multiple disease indicators, such as mRNA of disease-related genes associated with small-cell lung cancer and prostate cancer . Moreover, they can be used in experimental models, such as conditional transgenes or inducible expression systems. Environmental monitoring is another interesting application. A cell based biosensor using logic gates has been used to detect arsenic, mercury and copper ion levels.

The iGEM Team BIOSINT México, considered that when people talk about ethics, specifically, the members of all the teams, lack of an ethical code to serve as a guide for considering the ethical aspects of the projects.
So, we have the idea of creating an ethical code that serve as a guideline for all the SynBio community. That being said, we want to ask you which topics would you like to be treated in this document. Here, we present some topics that we have considered for the ethical code, you ca
